|Change In Ownership
A change in ownership does not
require the immediate execution of a new contract; however,
the current owner must request in writing approval for the new
owner to assume the HAP Contract from Charleston-Kanawha Housing
Authority (CKHA) and provide documentation about the new owner prior to the sale.
CKHA must receive:
1. A written request by the old owner in order to change HAP
payee and/or the address to which payment is to be sent.
2. The name, address and telephone number of the proposed new
3. The date by which the transfer of property is to be final.
CKHA will process the Assumption of Contract only after
the proposed new owner has qualified. A new contract will
be executed at the time of the next scheduled recertification
for the tenant.
CKHA will process
a change of ownership only upon the written request of the
new owner and only if accompanied by a copy of the escrow
statement or other document showing the transfer of title
and the Employee Identification Number or Social Security
number of the new owner.
Change of Address
CKHA will process a change of address for a landlord upon
receipt of a written request and an updated W-9 Tax Identification
Form. The request and completed form should be sent to the Tammy Good-Knight at firstname.lastname@example.org. A temporary change of address should
also be submitted in writing to the Senior Housing Specialist.
